Faculty's Role in the Convocation
The New Student Convocation is the official beginning of first-time-in-college students' entry into Florida Atlantic University.  As a faculty member, you are here in large part because of the extraordinary students who are our partners in the exploration for knowledge. You are the heart and soul of the academic enterprise at FAU and your attendance at the New Student Convocation represents your commitment to FAU's newest members of the community of learners.

The New Student Convocation will be held on Sunday, August 17, 2014, the day before the first day of fall semester classes.

The 45-minute ceremony will begin promptly at 2:00 p.m. 

College Deans and Faculty are asked to meet in the Burrow's Grill of the Student Union starting at 1:30 p.m.  An event coordinator will direct faculty in the line-up and will lead them in the processional to the stage with the Deans in front of the line.

The Carole and Barry Kaye Performing Arts Auditorium is located inside the Student Union building.  The Student Union (UN-31 on the campus map) is located on the east side of West University Drive. The main entrance from Glades Road onto West University Drive is the best route to take. Convenient parking is located in front of the Student Union in Lot 16 or you may park in Parking Garage I (PK-81 on the campus map).  This garage is north of the Student Union.  Click here for an interactive map.

All faculty are asked to wear their regalia.  Staff who have earned a Ph.D. are also invited to wear their regalia and join the faculty in the Processional.
